Radiation Tissue Damage
Radiation is a commonly used treatment for many different medical conditions. Frequently used as a therapy for various forms of cancer, it is common for radiation to cause necrosis (death of the cells), both cancerous and healthy, in the areas irradiated. Radiation has been known to damage blood vessels and the lack of blood supply can eventually cause non-healing wounds to form in soft tissue and bone.
The use of Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy to treat radiation tissue damage can heal the tissue by regenerating blood vessels, re-populating the damaged area with new stem cells, and accelerating all stages of wound healing. The benefit of Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy to treat radiation tissue damage has been shown in several randomized controlled trials, which are available in the Research & Studies section.
